- Bang for buck
- Stereo is anemic
Purchased As New
I have driven this car for a little over 2 years now as a daly commuter. I travel 104 miles a day round trip in weather ranging from the high 20's in th winter to 110 degrees iin the summer. This little econobox has performed as expected. It has a loud ride but it makes up for by being completely reliable and getting a consistent 40mpg/Hwy average.
Dont buy this car expecting a luxury car quiet ride smooth ride or sportscar handling and acceleration. It is an econobox designed for fuel economy and low price, Its excells in both these catagories. I would reccomend this car to family and friends if judged along these parameters....read morehide

- Gas mileage is wonderful. I average 38 in combined driving. On hwy trips have seen as high as 46.
- Arm rest made of hard plastic, cup holder placement
I have owned this car since July of this year. I now have 6,000 miles on and feel I can write a real review. This is my first toyota and I'm impressed. If this experience holds up across the time I will own mly Yaris, I'll look to toyota when it needs to be replaced. I paid 15k for this car, so compared to other vehicles it was inexpensive. The interior/ride are comfortable. The performance is acceptable. As others have said, the space on the inside and truck is amazing for a small car. What is also amazing is the fuel economy. The amount of fuel cost savings, compared to my last vehicle (Ford Ranger 4x4 @ 18mpg), covers much of the monthly loan payment. When the car si paid for, will be way ahead of the game and not be placing $'s into Middle Eastern hands. I can, without reservation, recommend this car to anyone seeking a reliable, fun and ecornomical vehicle....read morehide

- Smoth of drive into city. Very good.
- On Highway it becomes a little hard to control after 70 miles. The radio stereo is too weak.
In general it's a very good car. The space inside is awesome! I guess it is better than Corolla.The engines still might sound powerfull for who looks an economic car.

- I get about 37 to 39 miles to the gallon
- the ride is good for a small car. handles like a tight little sports model
this car has plenty of room to stretch out love the center console very easy to read don't have to look through the steering wheel. The only complaint I have is wind, the little thing definitely doesn't like the wind cross winds especially, but when you get used to that. all is good with this vehicle. I needed a gas miser and I definitely got one I am 100% satisfied with this car, I would recommend it to anyone needing a gas sipper. I'm now sold on Toyota's I might try the corolla next time....read morehide

- Fuel economy. I have done 49 MPG. Worse was 38.5 because I drove like a race car. Cute.
- better seats for long rides.
Yaris is great. I have had car for 15 months 37,500 miles later and it still is going strong. Average 42.35 MPG all around driving. Cup Holders are great. Inside room is larger than most small cars. Regular Maint and nothing else yet. Thinking of buying a second one and having my daugther take this one. My total Savings in Gas paid for this car in 15 months. Have freinds with the Fit and other small cars. They wish they had a Yaris for the fuel savings....read morehide

- Gas mileage, affordable insurance, quality
- No keyless entry
I have consistently gotten over 40 mpg with this car in mixed highway and city driving. The lowest mileage I ever got was 39 mpg and the highest was 44 mpg on a highway trip (70 mph with the air conditioner running). Not a head turner but who cares? I now have 40,000 miles and my car and no problems at all....read morehide

- as good or better than advertised fuel economy, very good stereo, great handling
- nothing too much given the price
a wonderful little, economical car from Toyota. It is hard to find any real fault with it, I am almost forgetting how to pump gas

- 41 MPG combined, good audio system, actually fun to drive
- Why complain? It's NOT an Avalon people! Remember why and how much you paid for it!
I'm tired of hearing people complain about this and that about these sub-compacts...It's an entry level car! Quality, fit and finish is not the objective. What is, is fuel economy, cost effective transportation. Forget about the sport suspension, leather and seat heaters!

- Good fuel economy, peppy little engine
- can get noisy at 70mph, goes high on RPM
I was the first person in Jackson, MS to buy this car, since everyone around here drives trucks or SUV's. I bought my 2007 in '06. They couldn't give these great cars away. Gas at the time was $2.05 a gallon too. So I was getting a lot of laughs at me! Anyway - it is 2008 gas is at $3.85 a gallon and I am looking like Albert Einstein. I get 35mpg in the city and 41mpg on the hwy., due to my lead foot. It rides great on the highway. But if you want to weave in and out of traffic - get the manual, the automatic is way to slow! In first gear you can peel some rubber quite easily. For an economy car it is pretty strong in the low-end! I need a new set of tires and I only have 36,000 miles on this puppy. I am 32, male, 6'1.5" and 225lbs. I ride comfortably with 3 in my sedan, but have squeezed 5 people in trips up to 20 miles without anyone complaining! Air condition blows snowballs and you know I need that in Mississippi. I have officially gave it the nickname "The Baby Camry!" I stronlgy recommend this car to anyone! Male, female, young or old! Can't beat the value! Go get one today, that's if you can find one on a lot! lol!!!!!!!!!...read morehide
